invalid attribution

The mental act of attributing an effect (usually a body sensation/feeling) to a cause in an incorrect relationship. E.g. attributing basic tiredness to “depression”, or basic hunger to “anger”. It is a result of the mind incorrectly identifying a causal relationship and then behaving as though that causal relationship is accurate. See full article: Invalid Attribution.
